A Trusted Orthodontist in Penticton
Dr. Paxon completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry at Trinity Western University in 2002. He returned to school to pursue graduate studies in inorganic chemistry at McMaster University before entering dentistry at the University of British Columbia, graduating with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry in 2013.
Immediately after completing the dental program, Dr. Paxon continued to specialize in orthodontics. In 2016, he graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Master of Science degree in craniofacial science and a diploma in orthodontics.
Dr. Paxon completed the national specialty board examination in the same year and has been practicing as a certified specialist in orthodontics ever since.
Dr. Paxon is a fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada and maintains membership in the Canadian Association of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists. He actively continues his education by attending numerous seminars, meetings, and study clubs.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools at Beam Orthodontics. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Paxon.
Braces in Penticton are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues.
Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, your overall treatment time may be slightly reduced.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Penticton and the surrounding areas. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Paxon.
The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20 – 22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Paxon at Beam Orthodontics in Penticton will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
